Question Vizard & USB 5DT Data Glove

Hi,

I'm having trouble getting vizard to detect an USB 5DT Data Glove Ultra 5.

Code:
import viz
import hand
viz.go()
#Add the 5DT sensor
sensor = viz.add('5dt.dls')
At this point vizard looks for a glove on COM1. Changing this with a command such as
Code:
PORT_5DT = 2
does allow me to change to another serial port (COM2 in this case). But I can't get it to point to a data glove connected on USB0.

Doesn't 5dt.dls offer USB support? Or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Ron

Hi,

The driver for the 5DT data glove was made before the USB version was released. We will update our driver within the next few days. I will let you know when it is finished.

Hi,

I've attached a modified version of the 5DT driver to this post. It includes two files: fglove.dll and 5DT.dls. Place the file fglove.dll in the [Vizard25]/bin directory. Place the file 5DT.dls in the [Vizard25]/plug-ins directory. To connect to a USB glove you will need to specify the USB port as following:
Code:
PORT_5DT_USB = 0
This will attempt to connect to a glove on USB0. We do not currently have a 5DT data glove to test this new driver with, so if you experience any problems please let me know immediately.
